Our #YouFirstClients Kristaps Porzingis (NYK) and Nerlens Noel (PHI) have been choosen to be in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge that will take place on February 12th as part as the NBA All-Star Weekend.
For the second consecutive year, the rookies vs sophomores game, will repeat the format US vs The World; a duel between american players (US Team) and players from he rest of the World (World Team).
The NBA coaches are the ones who choose the roster for this classic game, always following a requirement: selected players must be in their first or second year NBA contract.
Meanwhile, our #YouFirstClient, Kyle Lowry, was chosen by the fans as one of the players for the starting lineup.
The game is taking place on Sunday 14th February in the city of Toronto, so it will find Lowry as his local hero. For the second year in a row, the Raptors’ franchise player has been named one of the starters of this All-Star Game, thanks to his 21 PPP, 5 RPP & 6’5 APP and also for the support that celebrities like Drake or Justin Bieber show him in their social media.
Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony are the rest of the Eastern starters.
